McCarl shatters record; takes second win of season

By Shawn Neisteadt

Terry McCarl's night started where it ended after the last event, in victory lane.  Setting quick time is nothing new for the four-time and defending track champion, but the lap time he put down was a new track record.  McCarl's lap of 10.520 seconds shattered the previous record time (10.642 seconds) held by World of Outlaw's star Mark Kinser. The Outlaw Sprint 25-lap main event had John Lambertz take the lead as the race began.  On lap three, the Dee Zee #71 of Dennis Moore Jr. made his way around the outside of Lambertz and claimed the lead. Moore was continuing to lead as the front-runners ran into the back of the field and started maneuvering through the dense lap traffic on the seventh lap.  McCarl, who started eighth, used the traffic and rocketed from the fourth position to the rear bumper of Moore, but  Mark Toews reclaimed the second spot in the following turn. Chad Meyer brought out the first caution flag by spinning out while coming off turn four.  The incident also collected Kenny Hansen and Gregg Bakker. The red flag waved over the speedway after an unsuccessful restart with an incident involving six cars.  Hansen was again collected, but this time the #4 car tipped over, ending the "the guy from Nunda's" evening. The battle up front continued after the restart, but again the caution flag waved as Micah Schliemann spun out while battling John Lambertz for the fifth position. With ten laps now in the books, the field again restarted.  This time McCarl was able to pass Toews and set his sights on Moore.  Over the next twelve laps of racing, McCarl and Moore ran wheel to wheel several times. With three laps to go, Moore got caught behind a lap car allowing McCarl to put the slide job on coming off turn four.  Moore countered with a slide job of his own in turn one, but came just short of making the pass. McCarl wheeled to win number 45 at Huset's.  Moore finished second followed by Don Droud Jr., Mark Toews and Skip Jackson. "I made three mistakes in traffic that cost me the race," said the dejected Moore.  "We were fast, but he's faster." Hansen, McCarl and Toews won the heat races.

Randy Droescher took the lead early in the NMRA 360 sprint main event and had a nice lead until the red flag came out on lap 13 for Bill Fredin who had gotten into the turn three wall and flipped his sprinter. Droescher had the restart lead followed by Bob Gilliland, Troy Vink and Lee Goos Jr.  Lurking in the fifth position was Butch Hanssen, who made his way into the main event by winning the "B" feature. When the green came back out, Goos passed Vink for the third position.  Hanssen went to the high line and passed the top four cars during the next three laps to put the Holiday Inn #8 into victory lane from the fifteenth starting position. Following Hanssen to the line were Droescher, Goos, Gordy Vogelaar and Gilliland. Droescher, Vogelaar, Lyle Howey and Justin Saathoff each won a heat race.

Dale Furby had the lead of the Late Model Stock Car feature when the first yellow flag of the event waved for debris on lap four. On the restart, Howard Baartman passed Chad Overgaard for the second position.  Baartman was able to use the high line to pull alongside of Furby and the pair raced around the speedway door to door for two laps. As the leaders came off turn four, Furby drifted up the speedway and bumped the front end of Baartman's car sending it hard into the turn four wall.  The impact with the wall ended Baartman's night, while the black flag ended Furby's. Overgaard assumed the lead spot and held on to put his Deutsch Trucking car in the winner's circle for the first time ever at Huset's speedway. "Feels pretty cool," said Overgaard. "These are some pretty awesome, fast cars here to compete with." JJ Zebell finished second followed by Ray Feltman Jr., Mark DeBoer and Brad Wollman. Heat race wins went to Baartman, Overgaard and DeBoer.
